Apple TV+ renews five originals for a second season
Dickinson, See, Little America, Home Before Dark and For All Mankind will be back for series two.
Ahead of its international launch on November 1st, Apple TV+ has renewed five of its original shows for a second season.
Dickinson, See, Little America, Home Before Dark and For All Mankind will all be returning for a second series at an unspecified date in the future.
Production on the second season of Dickinson starring Academy-Award nominee Hailee Steinfeld has reportedly already begun.
As seen in the recently released trailer, the half-hour series will explore the teenage years of famous poet Emily Dickinson (Steinfeld) in the same kind of colourful, comedic vibe as Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette.
Post-apocalyptic drama See stars Jason Momoa as tribal warrior in a future where a virus left all survivors blind. Apparently costing a huge $15 million per episode, it was written by Peaky Blinders creator Stephen Knight and helmed by The Hunger Games’s Francis Lawerence.
Anthology series Little America will take an in-depth look at the lives of immigrants across America while Home Before Dark is based on the life of young journalist Hilde Lysiak who exposed a murder in her hometown when she was just nine-years-old.
Sci-fi series For All Mankind comes from Battlestar Galactica creator Ronald D.Moore and imagines a world where the USSR landed on the moon first winning the Space Race.
The platform’s most high-profile series The Morning Show starring Jennifer Anniston and Reese Witherspoon was straight away given a two season order.
Five other additional series will be available to stream on Apple TV at launch which include documentary The Elephant Queen and a couple of children shows like Snoopy in Space.
UK viewers can subscribe to Apple TV for £4.99 a month through the Apple TV app which is available to download for free on a wide range of devices.
